UPDATE: Yeezy Season 1 has hit without warning! The Yeezy 950 is dropping in store at Sneakerboy tomorrow morning, with stock hitting their webstore from 12pm AEST. The Kanye designed duck boot is available in both black and ‘peyote’ make-ups, with a darker peyote colurway also releasing in women’s sizing – though curiously priced higher than the men’s release. The price tag is hefty (cheapest item in the collection is USD $230 for the camo-print tee) but if you can’t resist copping that new new then track down your nearest premium adidas Originals account and get your duck walk on.
We saw all kinds of post-apocalyptic apparel and footwear genius/lunacy at the Yeezy Season NYFW show, and now word is the price list for the whole range has leaked, giving us a better idea of what’s what. This duck boot behemoth got a bit of attention when it showed up on the concrete runway, but there was no word about its place in Kanye’s collection. While we still don’t know for sure when it’s going to drop, High Snob obtained a price index and this item looks like it will sell for a massive $500! We’ll let you interpret how that stacks up against Kanye’s pleas to make his work with adidas affordable, just remember he doesn’t have ultimate control of every link in the chain, even though he’d like to. Stay tuned for better pics and drop date info.
